Casting the TV Expendables
The Expendables 3 might not have set the box office alight, but you can’t keep a good action hero down.
Sylvester Stallone is reportedly planning to bring his OAP ass-kicker franchise to the small-screen, with an Expendables event series in the works at Fox.
Much like how the films united action heroes of ’80s and ’90s cinema – Stallone, Schwarzenegger et al – so this new show is looking to bring together iconic TV tough guys from yesteryear.
Casting is yet to be confirmed, but in the meantime, here’s Digital Spy’s dream team for the TV Expendables.
1. Kiefer Sutherland
He might not be eager to reprise Jack Bauer any time soon (dammit!) but Kiefer has to be on this list. His commanding presence makes him a natural fit for team leader – the TV equivalent of Stallone’s Barney Ross.
